Automobile Rental

Vehicles rented for University-related travel should be in the most economical price bracket offered by the auto rental agency. Travelers are encouraged to choose mid-size or compact cars to reduce fuel costs and carbon emissions.

All employees and students who are renting automobiles while on Clark University business are covered by Clark’s automobile insurance. When renting a vehicle to be driven within the United States or Canada, you should decline any liability or collision insurance offered by the car rental company. You must, however, purchase comprehensive and collision insurance for any non-US or Canadian rentals

Generally, Enterprise should have the lowest rates. Enterprise and National are owned by the same company so they share the same Corporate Discount and Billing Account numbers.
